Christa’s Sew and Tell – Baby French Roses #1

My sister just adopted this sweet baby girl a few weeks ago and you know what that means –
I get to make her a baby quilt! (That’s my daughter holding her new baby cousin.)

Ever since I put together some French Rose Buds quilt kits, I have been looking for an excuse to make one myself and now I get to! I created the kit completely from Kona Solids to give it a clean, fresh appeal. This quilt will go in the baby’s room.

The kit includes one of Heather French’s fabulous French Rose Buds patterns, a smaller version of her original French Roses. Read my French Roses Quilt blog posts here and here to see the variations I’ve made from the larger sized pattern.

French Rose Petals

Tracing and cutting the petals was fun!

I spent a glorious day cutting out all of the fabric for the quilt. I’m making mine slightly larger by increasing the width on a couple of the sashes. I may use some of the leftover scraps to extend the borders, too.

The rose appliques are all cut and ready to stitch down.  I’ll be sure to blog about my work-in-progress. This is going to be fun!
